So my friend found an old (still sealed) Yankee Brewer "burch's pale ale" kit in their house.
The Best by date on the yeast packet is may of 1997. Liquid malt extract feels fine...
Think I could just pick up a new packet-o-yeast (All I have in the fridge is 1116/1118 and red star blanc) and give it a try?
Or just toss it?
